Front end loader and implement manufacturer Quicke has introduced a new, multi-purpose bale grab call the Quadrogrip.

The company says it is especially designed to handle large and small, square, round, plastic wrapped or straw bales.

The Quadrogrip comes with a choice of two different arm lengths – depending on customers’ needs. The bale grab’s arms extend out from a narrow style frame, reducing the space required for handling and stacking bales.

This feature that is especially useful when working inside buildings, close to walls, or when stacking bales on a trailer. 

The arms are attached via wear resistant, replaceable plastic skid plates – removing the need for greasing and preventing any grease from contacting any bales or animal feed.

Besides the choice of arm lengths, the machine’s clever design details sees the arms angled slightly inwards to give good grip of the bale.

Each arm can also be individually locked, which makes loading or unloading a trailer easier and faster.
